Another training article

Dave MacLeod has written a short article for UKC. The most interesting bit of it for me was this:
...[improvement] isn’t possible without showing a bit of backbone. Everyone makes excuses, you can hear them all the time if you listen. Keep one ear on the ones coming out of your own mouth and every so often you have a ‘wake up call’ moment. Right there is the scaffold of your motivation to make a break to the next level.
I like this attitude; it emphasises a can-do approach to becoming better at whatever you're doing. Training to improve at anything is all about identifying your weak-points and working to improve them - and the first step to doing that is to admit what your weak-points are.
